We today was mostly Turnpike, which wasn’t that good for milage, but before that it started out nice with this first shot of my tank average at 50.2 mpg. If onlly it had kept up. Next the Waffle House, not much good I can say about it, except the service was good. Unfortunately the waffles left something to be desired.
Now we are into my mostly turnpike pictures shot out the window. At one stop, we did see some very interesting farm equipment.

We are heading to Minniapolis, heading up 183 to 281, etc. On 281 we found the Hard 8 bbq in Stephanville, and it was delicious. We can highly recommend the pulled pork, but everything was great.
Next we found this old building on 81 north of Bowie, it was a rundown two story building, but it was clearly something that should have been preserved. Built out of rock, petrified wood and glass, it was quite a site in the afternoon light. The grass was all grown up around it, and filled with grass hoppers, but that didn’t slow me down as I walked around to take these pictures.

Debbie and I went to the memorial for Sputnik this morning at the State Capital in downtown Austin. We had a large number of people in attendance, probably over 1000. We also had a Norma Chavez, one of our most involved legislators in attendance. We had music and a great sermon. It was a wonderful event, with all the clubs working together, and Sputnik would have been proud to attend. Sputnik will be missed in so many ways, but we will not give up the fight to protect out freedom.
Here are the best of the images we took, in no particular order. As usual, click any image for a larger version. Let me know if you want any full size images.

The Taylor CMA chapter had a fireworks extravaganza (sometimes known as a potluck) at Gary and Sharon’s house last evening. Lots of great food and fireworks. I can smell the smoke now!
We bought some flashing fireworks that made for some interesting photos, and their next door neighbor had lots of roman candles.
I particularly like the ghosting and the multiple flash image.
The middle one above looks like we are having a war, and is Debbie doing jumping jacks?
And what flashing fireworks would be complete without everyone getting involved!
